The quiet places are the ones I love the most.
Amidst the bustling tourist hub of Sintra, the Santuario da Peninha sits apart. It's hilltop location offers 360 degree views of the surrounding area looking south all the way to Cascais. Just a couple of days post-concussion this was exactly the place I needed to be. The Santuario itself was closed but no matter, we had the courtyard of the lower canary-colored building, along with it's views, to ourselves.
